Millions of people around the world suffer from symptoms of mental illness. More often than not, they suffer in silence due to social pressures and the stigma that surround these types of injuries. Steve Serbic, a First Responder who has been on the front lines for over 25 years, outlines his experiences with trauma (one event in particular that shook him to his core) and how he was able to ask for help and heal.
Steve captivates audiences by opening up and sharing his own journey through trauma and mental health recovery.
Redefining the way we speak about trauma, he speaks about Post-Traumatic Stress Injuries as a first responder and why it's so important to not label these injuries as 'disorders'. His talks are leading the way to tearing down the walls, getting rid of the stigma, and ending the silence associated with mental health injuries.
Steve describes the feelings of shame that come along with trauma and stigma, and how we, as a society, must work together to break the misconceptions surrounding mental health.
He has shared what he has learned with thousands of people across North America and his story is changing perceptions about mental health. His talks are inspiring people from all walks of life and empowering them to educate, understand, ask for help and protect themselves throughout their careers.
